It was a story right here at home, that was heard across the globe.
A couple weeks ago, two men dressed as Batman and Captain America made their mark saving a cat from a house fire in Milton.
The two superheroes were reunited with the cat Saturday.
Bob the cat and Batman were together again, taking their real life lesson of fire prevention to a parade in Milton Saturday.
Most cats are known to hate water, but considering what this one has been through, a little rain was nothing.
Bob made international headlines when he was trapped in a house fire in Milton a couple of weeks ago.
Batman and Captain America, also known as John Buckland and Troy Marcum, were nearby teaching positive lessons to children at a party when they saw smoke, busted in the house and rescued the furry friend.
Buckland used to be a military fire fighter and had to resuscitate the cat.
On Saturday, the real life superheroes along with the help of the homeowner's grandkids, inspired others with a message to do good and help others.
